Comm Ave Replacement

Green Line: B Branch

This project replaces half of the bridge that carries Commonwealth Avenue and the MBTA Green Line B Branch over the Massachusetts Turnpike and the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail track. MassDOT is using Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques to reconstruct the bridge as quickly as possible and minimize the disruption to your travel.
